Kort biografi
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
His father, Dr. Robert Henry Power, was a well-known physician, and served in both houses of the State Legislature. His grandfather, Dr. Frederick Bryan Power, was a Baptist, and old Grafton church, where the family worshiped, was founded in 1813. The congregation accepted Alexander Campbell's position and he visited them in 1856. Mr. Power's mother was Abigail M. Jencks, of DeRuyter, Madison County, N. Y. She was educated at Mrs. Willard's famous Troy Female Seminary; was a teacher and a woman of exceptional culture and beautiful character. He received his early education from his mother. He entered Bethany College in September, 1868, and graduated in June, 1871. Was ordained to the ministry in October, 1871. He spent some time in preaching for country churches in eastern Virginia, then took charge of the Church of Christ in Charlottesville, Virginia. In September, 1874, he was called to be assistant Professor of Ancient Languages in Bethany College. Took the pastorate of Vermont Avenue Church of Christ, Washington, D. C., September, 1875, which importent place he has continuously served since that time. Bro. Power was for seven years President Garfield's pastor. Was elected to the offlce of chaplain of the House of Representatives by acclamation for the Forty-seventh Congress. The degrees of M. A. and LL. D. were conferred upon him by Bethany College. Has served as president of the American Christian Missionary Society and Trustee of the United Society of Christian Endeavor, and for twenty years has been president of the Maryland Christian Missionary Society. He had for many years been a correspondent of the Christian Standard, and was associate editor of the Christian Evangelist. He is the author of a Life of W. K. Pendleton, Bible Doctrine for Young People, Sketches of Our Pioneers, etc.

Bro. Power's position at the Capital of the nation, and his relation to the late President Garfield, who was a member of his congregation, in those trying scenes culminating in his death, brought him before a much larger circle than that of his own brethren. He has wrought a work in Washington which few men could have accomplished.
